Go Walking In The Mountains

Updated on October 26, 2016

Do you have an appreciation for the great outdoors? Taking a walk up in the San Bernardino Mountains is the ideal recreational experience, especially in late April. In the spring the trees are sprouting leaves, and the crisp air is invigorating for those who do not like the heat of the summer months. So how do you get to the San Bernardino Mountains from the Los Angeles region? First, you should consult Google Maps for the best driving directions, but taking the 10 East all the way to Redlands and then merge on to the 210 East. Once you get to San Bernardino, you want to exit on the Waterman Ave, which eventually turns into highway 18 at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains. Take Highway 18 all the way up to Lake Arrowhead, or continue up to Big Bear to see more of the San Bernardino Mountains.

Below is a short video taken during a morning walk in the San Bernardino Mountains.

On my walks I always enjoy looking at the Pinnacles, and photographing this location.

I love the contrast with the branches of the oak tree and the mountains behind it.

When I walk around on short hikes up in the San Bernardino Mountains, I observe small objects such as interesting rocks.

I love looking across the canyon to see trees on the hillside in the distance.

In the early spring it is very encouraging to see small sprigs of grass emerging from the forest ground.

As I glance down the forest road I see a tree stump, which once belonged to a mighty oak tree.

Each spring I always used to await the leaves that form on the oak trees each spring.

      I loved Arrowhead, when my wife and I were first married and lived in LA in 1974. Beatiful lake, like a postcard.

      Hi Princessa,

      I did not know you had a grandma who lives in Los Angeles :). You might even want to visit the Angeles National Forest, which is closer than the San Bernardino Mountains. The Angeles National Forest is less than an hour drive from LA. The Angeles National Forest looks similar to the San Bernardino Mountains, where I grew up and take most of the picture for these photo essays.

      Hi George,

      Thanks for reading and commenting!
